Noumea, New Caledonia
Delivering the perfect alchemy between performance, comfort and safety, the Catana 471 is one of the most sought-after cruising catamarans in the world. Naonao is your chance to own an Owner’s version of this impressive model, which is currently lying in New Caledonia.
Naonao is the ideal model for a family with children or a cruising couple hosting occasional guests who want to venture into the blue water.
Its robust construction features hulls reinforced with Kevlar-like aramid fibres, and her asymmetrical hull design – inspired by Lock Crowther – ensures unrivalled seaworthiness and impressive speeds. Tulip-shaped bows for fine water entry also prevent the pitching effect, together with the carbon fibre mast limiting the weight in the higher end. Naonao‘s daggerboards allow you to point as well as on a cruising monohull, just faster, which is an essential feature when cruising the Pacific.
The catamaran’s manoeuvring lines all return to the safety of the cockpit on a power winch, and the deck is clutter free allowing easy and safe access for sail handling.
The cabins are generous in size and enjoy ample natural light and ventilation courtesy of the expansive portholes. The owner’s suite enjoys its own entire hull and includes an abundance of storage and dedicated bathroom.
The galley up overlooks the saloon and cockpit, allowing easy communication between all onboard. U-shaped seating in the saloon and a convertible dining table make the catamaran both comfortable and practical for relaxing onboard.
Naonao’s current owner has spared no effort or expense to maintain her in immaculate condition, with upgrades including:
- New rigging 2019 and performance mainsail 2017
- Updated electronics
- New battery house 2019
- New watermaker 2019
- New solar panels 2019
- New halyards 2019
- New anchor and chain 2017
- New Windlass 2020
- New outboard engine 2019
- New shades, upholstery, trampoline
If needed, her current owner would deliver Naonao to Fiji to her buyer to ensure an easier transfer as access to Noumea is still quite difficult.
